I was raised with these pictures.

And @PalmatierMeg said it best: a knockout.

Even Cyd Charisse's dress is "palmy".

What a palm!!!!

Muchas gracias all.

Can’t stop looking at it. Thankful that it’s not a super fast grower, having that crown shaft at eye level for awhile is quite the perk.

      Ho Lee Grail, Ho Lee Chit!
      Thankfully I have a garden large enough to wander and wonder at the beauty and variability of the various species of plants. Every now and then an event happens that well......, takes one's breath away. This Lemurophoenix has decided to come out of it's shell. It has held it's leaf sheaths for years now and they 
      finally gave way to reveal the most spectacular display, in a large way, of mauve, purple, and pink. Planted almost 12 years to the day from a 3 gallon, it was certainly worth the wait. Now, where's that bus, I'm ready to be run over.

      The good news is I can still capture the new leaf from the roof, the bad news is it's only 15' (4.5m) from the house. Well, neither the house or the 
      palm can't be moved so it's going to work no matter what. 
      It throws only two leaves a year, but looking at the mass of each one, that's a heck of a lot of work. Planted from a 5 gallon back in mid 2008 it continues to slowly grow larger and larger and I imagine it may start to trunk in a couple more years.

      If there's any palm I visit at least once a day (and often more) it's this Lemur palm in my front yard. Besides its colorful nature, it's the fastest growing palm I own. This is supposed to be a tropical palm and yet it continued growing all winter through chilly and mild periods alike. Each time a new spear appears it's redder than the last. The spear pictured just appeared three days ago and is really popping. I hope I can nurture it to maturity.

      Can any of you with maturing examples of this species post pictures? Are any of you outside the tropics growing this too?

      Well, I have had various ones of these some of you know and think they are actually more hardy than most think.. BUT I've had a few die, mostly to me letting them go dry when they weren't ready for it...

      ANYWAY, I decided to give this small 5 gal Lemurophoenix halleuxii a chance in the ground.

      Taking a cue from DoomsDave with my title... two of my three Lemurophoenix halleuxii are having a synchronized frond opening. Here they are two mornings ago...



      The largest in the middle has a spike, but it will grow much more before opening. The two smaller palms sport the color.
